Self-awareness and self-understanding is not something you're born with. It's a learned skill. I received late diagnoses of both ADHD and ASD, and had to learn who I was all over again; through numerous life experiences, assessments and tools. There is an easier way. A shortcut, if you will.
It is my goal to help and support as many people with ADHD and ASD as possible. Providing neurodiverse individuals with confidence, understanding, and opportunities they may never have dreamed possible.
There's no reason for a diagnosis or suspected diagnosis to hold you back in life. You can learn to control it, love it, and recognise it as the greatest superpower you own. You can get almost everything you desire by discovering your true, authentic, fabulous self.
An ADHD & ASD Coach is someone trained to help others to better manage their lives, specifically from a neurodiverse lens. For example, you may need help with motivating yourself to do tasks, help with chronic disorganisation or lateness, to start (or stop) new habits and routines, or better yourself in other areas such as socially, physically, financially etc. That is where I come in.
I can help you develop:
- healthier self-esteem and relationships
- social skills and boundary setting
- clearer judgement
- planning and organisation skills
- time management skills
- self-efficacy, understanding and awareness
I am based in Melbourne, Australia, however, I offer coaching sessions to individuals all over the world. Currently, I specialise in adults, including parents, and adolescents. My coaching platform is currently exclusively online via video call, however phone calls can be arranged.
1:1 coaching sessions last around 50 minutes in length, to allow 10 minutes of admin between sessions. If you are interested in me as a coach, you will be offered a free 30 minute discovery call. During this, we will have the space to ask any questions, find out more about one another, and the coaching process.
I never had self-awareness or an understanding of myself. It was so bad that I stumbled through life, making the same mistakes over and over again. The fact is, I never knew about my diagnoses of both ADHD and Autism (ASD).
In my 30's, and living in Melbourne, Australia, I found myself in a place where I couldn't move forward. I was stuck. This is where my journey of self-discovery began, and my world began to change for the better.
That's when I started looking for the solution. I am three years into my journey now, a podcast* and two diagnoses under my belt, and I am still learning. But now, I am confident in myself, who I am, and why I do what I do. I have used my own personal life and work experience, and taken on extra study to become a certified ADHD and ASD life coach, and tailored all those things into one seamless process whereby I teach others.
And it doesn't take three years anymore.
I had been teaching in Primary Schools for 11 years across the United Kingdom and Australia, when I decided that a career change was needed. I desperately wanted to make a positive change in the lives of others who were similar to myself.
I began training with ADDCA (Attention Deficit Disorder Coaching Academy) at the start of 2023 to become a certified ADHD Coach and Life Coach, completing this in December 2023. Alongside this, I began undertaking study with Garnett and Attwood Events to gain expertise on Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
I am now coming to the end of my training, and am looking for adult and adolescent clients to work alongside to gain my accreditation as a certified ADDCA coach.
Whilst I am a 'Coach in Training', my rates will be discounted. But, fear not, the quality of coaching on offer has not been compromised! I love what I am doing and it comes very naturally to me. Being a teacher has helped me to make this smooth transition to coaching all the more successful.

I am absolutely hooked on cold water plunging and recently invested in my very own ice bath, which I try to do every day. I love it! From the shocking sensations of the cold, to the deep breathing and inner calm that takes over, nothing gets me quite ready for the day ahead like my ice bath!
I am cat obsessed! Big cats, little cats, wildcats, domestic cats... You name it. I have two little fur babies of my own and I am obsessed with them (The feeling is mutual!). I love nothing more than to snuggle with Toula and Nico. It is heaven!
When I feel overwhelmed or, on the flip side, completely relaxed, I love nothing more than to tend to my vast collection of indoor and outdoor plants! Sometimes I can lose hours of my day just staring at the new leaves coming through. It is my true mindfulness.
